tuesday. >> i would add, right before we came on, i got a memo from jim messina the obama campaign manager essentially pushing back on the idea that pennsylvania is now a swing state. so to mark's point, the president himself might not be engaged and rightly so but his campaign is still active. this is not 16 days it's six days. >> the romney campaign put out a memo about pennsylvania. >> absolutely. >> let me ask mark akbout pennsylvania. i was there last week. the republicans saying we can do this, we can win pennsylvania, democrats saying it's not even in play. what is your assessment? >> well the obama campaign needs pennsylvania to win. the romney campaign doesn't. i don't think they would be wasting the money in pennsylvania on the republican side if they thought they had no chance or at least a chance to distract the democrats. if the romney campaign went on the air in new york, i don't think the obama campaign would feel compelled to match the dollars there. if the obama campaign went on the air in texas tv i don't think the romney campaign would feel the need to go there.

ideologies. there are some people on the left who are angry at obama for the things the state and the things that have to do with the extensions of bush. some don't see it that way. there's a big difference between obama's foreign policy and bush's foreign policy. the civil liberties, obama in the back, now, individual circumstances that are being pointed to, i don't think they have been verified yet. and that is that individuals may do bad things. no human rights organization is saying that that was ended. on the broader foreign policy question, i think it is a huge earth shattering difference that obama is on the side of bottom-up democracy in the middle east in countries and countries, even when the dictators are allies. it is unheard of for an american president to push out an allied was a dictator because the people have turned on that person. >> tell that to ferdinand marcos >> with all due respect, i don't think that is true as well. >> you can jump in anytime. >> i don't think it was that across to turn on a dictator. >> an across-the-board policy of either administration. >>
